Different from what I normally offer on this podcast, today's story is one that I've written (and recorded) collaboratively with three other women, the three women with whom I have been writing for nearly 3 years: Julie Daley, Tanya Geisler, and Amy Palko. Along the way we discovered a process we call "braided writing" in which our voices have merged into something more powerful than each one separately. It has changed us, to be sure. Today, on World Storytelling Day, it feels appropriate and like profound privilege to offer "Limned" to you. The sound quality and volume tend to waver a bit within. It will be worth adjusting for...I promise. And a warning: there is some profanity within.
